A penumbral lunar eclipse will occur on Sunday, July 5. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon moves into the Earth's shadow. This is possible only when all three (Sun, Earth and Moon) are extremely closely aligned with each other.

What is a penumbral lunar eclipse?

During a total solar eclipse, the Earth completely blocks the sun, hence there is no sunlight reaching the moon. This occurs when the moon passes through the central shadow of the earth, known as umbra. However, when the moon only passes through the prenumbra or the outer shadow, then the penumbral lunar eclipse occurs. For obvious reasons, a penumbral lunar eclipse is more difficult to spot rather than a total eclipse.

Where will the eclipse be visible?

The eclipse will be visible in North and South America and Africa. However, since the eclipse will occur during the day, it will not be visible from India.

Timings

In India, the penumbral lunar eclipse will start at around 8.37 am and go on till 11.22 am. The maximum eclipse will be at 9:59 am IST.
